Re: Are Any Of These PD?
Boy, I wish that some of them were public domain! W.C. Fields was the greatest. (As you probably know, he even wrote the stories for some of his films, using pen-names like Charles Bogle, Otis Criblecobble, and Mahatma Kane Jeeves.)
The only feature-length Fields film that is PD seems to be Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch, which is already here.
NOTE: although I looked for all of them, there's a problem with "The Old Fashioned Way". The renewal register for the second half of 1961 is not online at HathiTrust. So that movie is probably under copyright also.
